07 Apr Making for Change Pilot – Day 4
Today was our last full day before the Making for Change showcase at Impact Hub and the focus was on making, making, making. This meant digital printing, painting, crafting out of metal, paper folding, stamping and lots more.
Our workspace at mac Birmingham was a hive of activity and our makers in residence Melanie Tomlinson, Gemma Latham and Ben and Phil from Juneau projects worked alongside the group to realise the campaigns. Together the campaigns, which explore themes of isolation, stereotypes and the environment, incorporate all of the different techniques and processes tried out during the week and show a huge amount of thought and reflection.
As well as finishing off elements of the campaign, the group worked on making sure they had the right stats to back up their points and on thinking about how they would interact with people coming to the showcase.
We also got a sneak preview of the fantastic postcard designs created by Louise Byng. The three postcards she has created feature each of the campaigns and suggest ways for you to get involved at home. They should be ready to hand out at the showcase – we can’t wait to see them.
We are really proud of all the participants and their work and are looking forward to the big day tomorrow.
